Documentary about Norwegian dance music culture features contributions from all the scene's key players

You're probably aware of Northern Disco Lights by now, but for anyone that isn't, it's a feature-length documentary about the history of dance music in Norway, and in particular how the nation gave birth to the ambient disco sound of 'Scandolearica'. And now details of the film's UK premiere have been made public.

Directed by Paper Recordings boss Ben Davis and produced by Pete Jenkinson, the film will get its first UK showing as part of the Doc N' Roll festival, which celebrates music documentary film-making, at Rich Mix in Shoreditch on 5 November. It features contributions from pretty much all the major players involved in the scene, including the likes of Lindstrøm, Prins Thomas, Rune Lindbaek, Bjørn Torske and Joakim 'Smalltown Supersound' Haugland - not to mention iDJ's very own Matt Anniss.

After the premiere, there'll be a Q&A session with Ben and Pete, followed by an afterparty at Junction House in Dalston with DJs Bjørn Torske and Mental Overdrive. Tickets for the afterparty cost £10.
